It’s been a while since I’ve had a good experience with a bicycle. While I can pedal away on them at the gym, going out and about on a regular bike is an entirely different ordeal (whoever said you never forget how to ride a bike was wrong). However, if you’re like me, you probably still have a 10 speed lying around in the garage that hardly sees use. If you want to work up the courage to go out and ride your bike in the real world, why not practice at home first?
The KICKR is a bicycle trainer that will let you use your own bike as if it were a cycle at the gym. You’ll change out the back wheel with a device that works in tandem with an app on your iPhone to change resistance. Through the app, you’ll be able to track your speed and power in watts. The KICKR will work with Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+ technologies. While there’s no word on a definite price just yet, it is expected to hit the market sometime in November in the US.
